Last night I went to a club to see the Deathsquad show with Brian Redban and Dean Delray as the headliners. It started a bit late as they were hoping for more people to come in I think. This is a really cool old theatre it would seat about 300-400 people tonight there was about 100 maybe 120.
So the show started with a local band I can't remember their name Im not here for music anyway. Then an MC came out and did a bit and brought on a burlesque dancer who just stripped! some of the guys were wooing then back to the MC who brought on a twerking group they weren't ready so he did a bit more then they weren't ready so we had a quick break.
We return with the twerk group who taught me something valuable! White men can't jump and white girls can't twerk! This was funny as fuck they just moved around moving there asses in the air while half of the audience including myself cried with laughter. I can't write material this funny!
Then Burlesque girl came back then Brian O'Gorman the first stand up for the show he had a really solid set. Then the MC brought up Brian Redban, Now if you don't know him he is the Producer of The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast which has a massive following! His set was dirty as i expected and he got a good reaction from the crowd he wasn't a killer but when you feel like you know someone its easier to laugh along because you know their humour. Next up was Dean Delray, Now I have been looking forward to seeing Dean as he has followed the same path as me Heavy Metal singer to Stand up Comedian.
He had a good set it wasn't killer but he has only been doing stand up 5 years so I wasn't expecting him to slay the room. I was hoping he would talk about his music career a bit so I could see how he tells his stories and also how I can relay my music life to story.
Like I said before the show was pretty messy everyone went outside then some came back in for a podcast and Q&A but I had enough by then. I had a quick chat to Brian O'Gorman he told me to head to the Vapour room again tonight and ill be able to do a spot. Then we will catch up with Evan for a Toga party before heading to Montreal for Just For Laughs tomorrow morning. And I have a show that night in Montreal at 8pm somewhere?
White girls who twerk are funny as fuck! If you suck at comedy there is your path right there.
We all here from friends you should do stand up and that is because you know them, but as most of you know that doesn't translate to a crowd you don't know. I will see this again in Montreal if you have your own crowd they will go with you because they feel like they know you and have a personal investment in you.
But if you get your own crowd it would be easy to just do enough to sell and make coin. I don't want that I really want to hit hard and making new faces laugh.
If you run a show make sure it is smooth and flows without people onstage saying is he here or out front after you have introduced someone.
So tonight Vapour bar and then off to Montreal first thing in the morning. I have a heap of new material i want to try tonight before I have the gigs in Montreal.
Be cool stay in School.
